I've seen a lot of comments about iso 200 and 400 not being very useful on the FZ 10 and 20.

Those are pretty impressive shots esp at those ISO's - I've had a mixed results with my FZ10 even at iso200,some pretty nice shots but mostly not very good. I tried taking some pics yesterday at the park after work of a border collie and at ISO200 the noise was just appauling - I had to have the cam in shutter priority because I wanted to capture the dog running for the ball or jumping up for it - I got the shot but the noise was just yuck. I'll try again may be tonight.

PS

Weatherwise it was in my opinion bright, but the cam on ISO50/100 was acting as if it was in low light - so I was forced to go up to 200/400.

bmullen,

Hoggwash... The only issue I've seen is in low light situations there can be some, what some call, excessive noise in shadows when using the higher ISOs. I think people get entirely too worked up over it. I liken it to film grain and fully expect, from any camera, a certain amount of grain, in dark areas, at the higher film speeds. I say if it works for you, use it. You paid for it. Get every use out of the camera that you can.

Once again, Nice photos.. I'm still waiting for the Cardinals that seem to occupy a couple branches on my pine tree every year to return..

Jeff

Thanks guys. I found out yesterday that I get better results with the higher iso's if I turnthe Noise Red Pic Adjust setting to low, the sharpness setting High, and the saturation and contrast settings to standard. I am very pleased and excited about the results because when shooting birds using the higher iso's for faster shutter speeds is really helpful in order to get sharp shots. They tend to twitch a lot.
